Texan Whirl - Rickey Holden

Description

Rickey Holden calling the Texan Whirl figure attributed to caller Bob Sumrall, an influential caller starting in the 1930s in Abilene and other West Texas communities. The distinctive part has the women circling left underneath the men's arms making a right hand star, and then each woman rolls back around the gent behind her to reform the circle. Filmed in Denmark in 2004.

The accompanying set of instructions are excerpted from Holden's booklet, Square Dances of West Texas (1992).
